Research Field Japanese studies
Research Summary ・Japanese migrants in Australia
I research the experiences of Japanese migrants in Australia. In particular, I conduct interviews with permanent residents who have been living in Southeast Queensland for over 20 years. I analyse their motivations for migration and their post-migration experiences in relation to the concept of lifestyle migration.
Keywords migration, Australia, lifestyle
